    Description

    Circa 1927 Lou Gehrig Signed Photograph. Dating from the absolute pinnacle of the Iron Horse's storied career, this 8x10" photo began life as a souvenir stand purchase during the joint barnstorming venture that paired Yankees slugging superstars Gehrig and Babe Ruth. The former sends his best wishes to a young fan, inscribing the image, "To my little Pal Mackey with kindest personal regards, Cordially Lou Gehrig." An included letter from the original consignor explains that the handwritten "Arthur" is the work of her grandparents' friend, who gifted the photo to her father Arthur as he suffered from tuberculosis in the late 1920's. All ink survives wonderfully at a strength of 8+/10, and a border chip at lower right is the only flaw of note, easily remedied by a simple matting job. A charming keepsake from baseball's true Golden Age. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $5,000 - $7,000.
